Recent documents list does not work as a FIFO structure

I noticed an issue with the recent documents plugin that is displayed on the MATE Menu after you enable it in the Menu preferences.

But, I noticed that the new hplip is not recognized by the packaging system, which I would prefer. As Ubuntu 14.10 has hplip 3.14.6-1 (while LM ...

Re: can't apply any effect in cheese 3.8.3

According to some comments in GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 719692 it seems that this issue in Cheese may be related to Clutter graphics library.

PC-home - operating system and its version

From the subject of your question I guess one of the systems is Windows 7 and probably the other one is Linux Mint. But which PC runs which OS?
